‘The View’ Hosts Trash Carson for Suggesting Tubman on $2, ‘Needs Brain Surgery’

Posted on 22 April 2016

The hosts of ABC's The View on Thursday spent almost four minutes fretting over Dr. Ben Carson and Donald Trump suggesting Harriet Tubman be placed on the $2 bill as an alternative to replacing former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin in particular portrayed placement on the $2 bill as an insult, betraying an apparent lack of knowledge that the $2 bill that is still in circulation features no less than former President and Declaration of Independence author Thomas Jefferson's likeness.

The lambasting of Dr. Carson became so hostile that Raven Symone read a tweet from a viewer suggesting his "failed campaign" should be put on the $2 bill, and guest co-host Melissa Joan Hart ended the segment by recalling a slam against Carson that he "needs brain surgery."
